EVOTEQ has introduced a new parking management system in collaboration with Sharjah City Municipality.

The initiative will enable motorists in the emirate to locate and book parking spots on their smartphones.

Jihad Tayara, CEO of EVOTEQ said: “As a trusted partner, we are developing solutions that will establish Sharjah as a leading digital economy and smart city. At the same time, we will be improving the quality and efficiency of systems to benefit the everyday lives of residents. A major part of that will be how we are reimagining the future of Sharjah’s transport management and catalysing new technologies to facilitate improvement.”

Parking spaces will be classified with special categories such as VIP spaces. The project will also be introducing ‘Priority Parking’ for urgent parking for the first time ever in Sharjah. Payment for “Priority Parking” will be set to encourage drivers to use these spaces responsibly and only in relevant cases.

The project will initially run as a three-month pilot program to measure success and ease of usage before being widely rolled out across parking lots in Sharjah.

As part of their agreement, both entities will also be exploring smart transport platform solutions for driver behaviour, traffic congestion and parking.
